We are thrilled to be back on the track again, and we can’t wait until our New Skater Clinic.

If you are on the fence about joining us, we wanted to share with you why some of us joined derby. So we asked our skaters, both veterans, and new skaters: what made you join, and what is your favorite part of derby?

Next up is #04, IVy Bruzinya.

What made you join roller derby?

When I was in the military I was surrounded by this feeling of belonging. No matter how tough something was, we had each other’s six. When I got out, I was looking for a community that made me feel that same sense of camaraderie. The derby community has given that back to me.

What is your favorite part about derby?

I love the fanfare. The elaborate makeup, the punny derby names, the themed bouts, and fun half-time shows. Also, the fact that you can be you, and aren’t expected to completely conform to be a part of the team!

How long have you been with Cornfed?

Playing for six years. Transferred to Cornfed at the beginning of 2022.

For more information on how to join Cornfed, check out our New Skater Clinic, which will be held at Gibson’s Skating Arena on Monday, October 24th, from 6:30-9 p.m.
